PROVIDENCE, Guyana – Pakistan international Shoaib Malik played a captain’s innings and former South Africa leg-spinner Imran Tahir delivered a destructive spell to help runaway leaders Guyana Amazon Warriors recover from a shaky start and romp to a crushing, 77-run victory over Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League on Thursday.

Warriors slumped to eight for four  inside the first two overs before Shoaib cracked five fours and two sixes in 73 from 45 balls, and shared two half-century stands with West Indies internationals Sherfane Rutherford and Keemo Paul, to catapult the home team to 156 for six in their allocated 20 overs, after they chose to bat in the contest at the Guyana National Stadium.

Tahir followed up with a spell of 3-12 from his allotted four overs, and fellow leg-spinner Qais Ahmad of Afghanistan and Paul grabbed two wickets apiece to put the skids on the Tallawahs batting and send them sliding to 79 all out in 16.3 overs.

It was the ninth straight win in the competition for the Warriors and condemned the Tallawahs to their eighth defeat of the season to finish their schedule of matches with just two wins, four points and in the basement of the tournament standings.  (CMC)
